Hello Kroc Family! Whether we like to admit it or not, we all thrive with more structure in our lives. We can clearly see this with children, even though most would say that is not the case! Structure brings direction, boundaries and often comfort and security. Structure helps us set goals, plans and schedules to assist individuals and families to succeed. The Kroc Center provides many opportunities to bring structure into your life. From youth programs to fitness classes, worship and fellowship opportunities, educational classes and more, we have something for every age! Come connect with our family! We would love the privilege of supporting you and your family to learn, grow, and succeed! "I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD'." - Psalm 122:1

Many blessings,

Majors Monty & Angela Wandling
